Fenland residents are being reminded to respond to their voter registration forms to avoid receiving a second one through the post.

A Household Enquiry Form (HEF) has been sent to every home across the district as part of Fenland District Council’s annual canvass to ensure the electoral register is up-to-date.

The form lists all those living in the property that are currently registered to vote and asks householders to check and update the details. Anyone who has moved out since the last register was published will need to be removed, and details of new occupants added.

It is a legal requirement to respond to the form even if everyone in the household is already registered to vote and no changes need to be made.

If you don’t respond, or provide false information on the form, you may be liable up to a fine of £1,000.

Residents can respond either online or by post.

A second Household Enquiry Form will be hitting letterboxes from August 25 reminding residents to act. To avoid receiving the second letter, make sure you provide the relevant details by August 20.
